Armed Forces Day

Today is Armed Forces Day USA. President Truman established the holiday in 1950 (the same year I graduated from Garfield High School in East Los Angeles).

If you enjoy Freedom of Religion, Freedom of Speech, and every other freedom in the Bill of Rights, you can thank the Armed forces of the United States. God Bless our Armed Forces.

And yes, this blog is a conflict of interest - and I’m proud of it. I’m an Air Force retiree and Vietnam veteran. That means I’m in the Air Force Retired Reserve. Theoretically, I could be recalled to active duty at any time I’m needed.

Obviously, if the situation gets bad enough to recall someone of my age and weight, you’d better head for the bomb shelter!
